Several changes took place this offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles. Their 1-5 finish in the regular season coupled with the first round playoff loss led to the departure of offensive coordinator Brian Johnson and defensive coordinator Sean Desai. With Kellen Moore and Vic Fangio taking over, this becomes a huge season for head coach Nick Sirriani.

His brash attitude is fine when the team is winning but it had him on the hot seat this year. Now he's intent on making things right in 2024. The coaching moves were the first step. Now, they need the right players. With that mindset, here are three prospects that need to be on their radar in the 2024 NFL Draft.

3. Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

Since 2011, the Eagles have had Jason Kelce snapping the ball, and has done a remarkable job. Kelce is not only one of the best players at his position but he's also become one of the more likable athletes in the game. His love for the sport shines through whether he's on the field for his team or cheering on his brother, Travis Kelce of the Chiefs.

The elder Kelce is reportedly considering retirement and that will leave a hole on the line for Philadelphia. They do have Cam Jurgens, a second-round pick in 2022 but moving him to center will mean they need a guard. That's why they should keep an eye on Oregon’s Jackson Powers-Johnson.

The 6-3, 320-pound center had a breakout campaign in 2023 but also proved he could play any position on the line. His intelligence and versatility make him a great option for the Eagles. They've had one of the best O-lines in football for years. This move ensures that remains the case.
